is the cost to the american people and to the united states of this steadfast port to israel. amazingly you have david petraeus head of the central command in 2010 testify before the armed services whee who said our linkage to israel is a major cause in it makes large parts of people in the middle east hate the united states and then backtrack because of how controversial it is. this is about the depressing debate we aught to be having over what cost there is to the american public and to the united states as a government to having this constant blind loyalty to this foreign nation even when it damages u.s. interest. hagel is one of the military people who raised this issue and that's the reason there's a vicious attack against him. >> do you not think that's true? >> i'm not going to address those issues specifically, but from a civil liberties perspective i think one of the main things to focus on from looking at the obama national security team in the second administration is how will they help shape the obama administration's legacy? any president in the second administration is going t
ports around this country as well as carriers. it is going to take funding. i would note in the middle class job creation at there is up to $150 million in grant funds available for next generation 911. that is a terrific resource. it is my hope that they will benefit from that. >> you have been an advocate for wireless consumers as they rely exclusively on wireless service. he believes consumers will benefit if the sec exercises authority to promote wireless competition? >> absolutely. competition, there are more opportunities. that is good, especially for lower incomes. i do not take a one size fits all. i believe i should help promote that and to the competitive market standing. >> thank you. >> welcome to the commissioners. let me mention how pleased i am that we are working cooperatively with the industry on the 911 issue. that is what kids use today. they move quicker than we do. the reports that i'm reading, then i like what is going on. we hope we would be working with regulators and the industry to identify it. kudos. i would say keep it up. the goal of this was to do two thin
gaveled out. we expect them back in about two hours. let's go to newbury port. caller: thank you for c-span. i do not understand where this $250,000 number comes from. i am 70 and have never been asked to make a sacrifice by any congress. it just seems to me that if the average income in most states -- to ask people making $125,000 or more, to ask them to contribute more, that seems to be a no- brainer. i do not see why people in this country are not ready to make a compromise. let's face it, we will either all have to pay slightly more taxes and accept the fact that our benefits are going to have to be lower than they really are -- i am in that bracket of $125,000 to $250,000. i am very comfortable, i could contribute more to the deficit, i just want to make sure that that money goes to the deficit in reality. it seems to me that that number comes up and is a political situation and what congress is really saying is that i am going to pander to the 98% because if i go to 125%, i will upset more of the electorate. i was listening to david brooks this morning and his comments that the r
as the interest of key countries like you just mentioned, russia, the only port they have outside of russian territory in syria. or after the sanctions on iran, syria became the major importer for weapons from russia. veryimportant issue for russia, as well as iran sending fighters to fight along the lines of the regime. as well as china with the issue of human rights. as long as the international community does not address the interests of the importance stakeholders, that is not really going to help. what is your take on that? >> i think they have very short form policy. i have been in moscow and we met with the russian minister of foreign affairs. syria and russia have a relationship. we need to keep such a relationship, but with such short policies by defending the assad regime, you of making such a relationship very difficult. i think the syrians see russia the same as they see the assad regime. when you see your brother and sister being killed every day -- i have been in syria and i have lots of examples. when the syrian people solve all of this happen for them, of course, they will ch
will in the energy security independence act of 2007, was it, was based on our port of 2007, which said that the united states should maximize its oil and gas production, that it should significantly reduce consumption and improve conservation, which led to the direct support for the reinstitution of fuel efficiency standards, which has not been done for 20 years. and to develop to the extent it was liable a biofuel substitute for petroleum. this new report we are releasing today continues these themes with a couple of important caveat. the fantastic revolution that is taking place since our original report and are intermittent reports by the so- called fracking revolution for oil and gas. the significant improvement in national efficiency that has been brought about by technology and the new fuel efficiency standards that were enacted by the bush administration and were increased by the obama administration. the report is not political in any way shape or form. it endorses things that are supported by the right in some cases and that are supported by people on the left. you cannot just
-speed rail would not happen without federal government to port including legislation by congress to authorize the program. the united states will maintain our position of economic leadership we have to invest in the best infrastructure in the world. that will not be true if we do not invest in high-speed rail. we cannot wait until heavyset cutely congested. airports cannot stand anymore to start thinking another long-distance transportation options. we did catch up to germany, france and japan. just heard this morning cioppino celebrating the 50th anniversary of their bullet train. we cannot allow china to surpass us in our next generation of infrastructure. tourists across the world will visit our high-speed rail to marvel at our civic engineering and technological prowess. this is not just at a transportation company changing the revitalization along the cities along the route. in conclusion, it is clear support the high-speed rail california. the federal program will help make it possible. what we need now is fishing. but we need now is leadership. what we need now is believed that the peo

of them. the port arthur massacre galvanized the country. even the government run by conservatives said we have to do something. essentially what they did is banned assault weapons. acquired much more strict licensing for everyone else and imposed what was semi voluntary buyback program. so they bought people's guns from them in some cases a lot of public pressure on people to give up their guns even if they had a right to keep them under law. they gave them up. they got 650,000 guns out of people's hands, about a sixth of the guns in australia, and here's what the former foreign minister alexander danner had to say about the experience. >> 67% of all homicides in the united states are committed with firearms whereas in australia, only 11% of homicide s are committed with firearms. the two sets of statistics tells you that the scheme we introduced in 1996, hugely controversial, all of the same arguments about rights to bear arms and so on, it has in the end saved a large number of lives in this country. >> okay. so that's australia which is a country that had a fair number of guns. another

factors is two-income households, all the things that have become a port of our modern society. work flexibility is locational decisions. in the case of the last recession and has been the case up until today. according to karen's research the volatility of household income rose nearly 30% in the last four decades. in addition to these realities, high unemployment and underwater home values have taught us sometimes flexibility and forced people to move and not be burned by people of virtue. the 30-year mortgage doesn't provide flexibility in most cases so we have to provide the flexibility of people relative to the housing and mortgage finance. we also have to challenge the assumptions of the purchase cycle. it's important to tons purchase cycle in which you buy homes has fundamentally changed. macroconditions, the economy strong and growth was high rand house prices continued to rise. a lot of that stuff isn't true anymore. the world looks at the united states and united states looks at itself with a lower growth. if we were sitting in this room in 2003 the forecaster would have ex
